central park

If New York is another world for me, Central Park is another world within it.

Upon entering the park, sounds of the city began to fade and trees become walls of shelter. There seems to be a silent understanding that guests are escaping the bustle of New York. So they're quiet.

Central Park's boundaries couldn't be any more symmetrical. Nature doesn't follow a grid (unless forced). The parcel of land is so perfectly constructed that it's easy to become optimistic and forget that it is largely landscaped.

Considering the surroundings, it is miraculous that Central Park remains green and not asphalt and skyscrapers.
